Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Representational State Transfer (REST) are relatively new technologies that are increasingly showing up in modern applications like mobile applications and web services. Unfortunately, their rapid rise in popularity also brings significant and damaging security vulnerabilities. Understanding how to provide web and mobile application security against these vulnerabilities is only one small step in the right direction. Developers face a number of challenges when it comes to building secure code.
When it comes to security in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) it’s clear that the convergence of both digital and physical paradigms in going to be required. At the South by Southwest conference next month Brivo Labs will release APIs designed to allow developers to achieve that goal.
